In 2020 only five days separate the much loved International Paint Poole Regatta and the world famous Round the Island Race. For yachts participating in both events, exclusive special benefits have been arranged in Poole to provide a seamless experience.

The International Paint Poole Regatta 2020 takes place from the 23rd to the 25th May and the Round the Island Race on the 30th May. The Poole Regatta provides competitive racing across a variety of racing classes and in 2020 will host six class championships and three high profile race circuits. Coupled with its renowned evening socials it is a weekend not to be missed. Entries are now open.

Competitors doing the double can take advantage of either a free swinging mooring in Poole harbour (subject to availability) or a discounted marina berth at Poole Quay Boat Haven for the four nights following Poole Regatta.

Poole Quay Boat Haven is a five gold anchor marina with superb facilities in the heart of Poole town. With the picturesque Jurassic Coast right outside the harbour and a multitude of bars, restaurants and shops only minutes away, it is the perfect place to prepare for your Round the Island Race following a fun weekend at The Poole Regatta. The swinging moorings are located overlooking Brownsea Island and offer privacy, peace and tranquility. They are serviced by launch for straightforward access to shore.

Alongside the berthing provisions, Poole Yacht Racing Association (PYRA) are offering visiting yachts free of charge entry to its feeder race from Poole to Cowes for IRC and VPRS classes on the 29th May. Any yachts wishing to return to Poole on Sunday 31st May can also enter the return race without charge.
